Autotest server interaction with clientsΒΆ

Tests can be run on standalone machines, or in a server-client mode.

The server interaction is simple:

  • Copy the control file across
  • Execute the control file repeatedly until it completes
  • Client notifies server of any reboot for monitoring
  • Upon completion of control script, server pulls results back (not client push)

All interaction with the server harness will be via the harness object. This object provides for a per harness interface. A null interface will be provided for standalone use.
